Garden Rug

 WHEW! Made it through Memorial Day weekend.
It was  busy here but, fun.
I've got lots of work to do in my flower beds.
I stopped planting last week because we had frost 2 nights in a row.
I covered up what I had planted, no damage, just a house full of flats of flowers.
I have been working on this rug, it took awhile because there is lots of detail.
It is a Notforgotten Farm Pattern from an OOP booklet.

 We got our new air conditioning installed today!!
I'm really excited, we've needed a new one for a long time.
Just in time for the 90 degree weather we are supposed to have
later this week.
I only got 1 lady slipper bloom this year. 
I love this plant, I am thankful that the plant survived the winter.
Hopefully, we will get more blooms next year.
Have a great Tuesday!
